ALSIP, Ill. - Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says hearts are broken after the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
   
He spoke Sunday to congregants at a suburban Chicago church. Quinn didn't directly mention George Zimmerman, who was cleared of all charges Saturday in Martin's death. Quinn says a young man lost his life to gun violence and he agrees with Martin's father who says his faith remains unshattered.
   
Quinn has spent several Sundays talking about violence in the Chicago area. He's previously pushed for an assault weapons ban and wanted stricter rules for Illinois' new concealed carry law. Lawmakers ultimately rejected his changes.
   
Quinn spoke earlier Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" saying he doesn't like Florida's Stand Your Ground law and that it should be examined.
